11/365 – One of my titles is missing.

Either I have become a photoshop god over night or today I made rainbow bread. Am well pleased with my culinary efforts. It was pretty simple really but very effective. Simply make your normal bread dough mix either in the machine or by hand, just before you leave it to prove for an hour divide the mixture up into as many bits as you want depending on how many colours you want, add some food colouring, the more colouring the stronger the colour, then layer the bits together and cook. Simple…

  • ifotou - awesome shot, will need to try that with the bread too – looks fantastic.

  • Matt - Cheers for that. It tastes the same as bread but with the colours it looks like it should be sweet. Here’s the recipe I followed.


    * 1 1/4 cups water
    * 1 tablespoon sugar
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 3 1/2 cups flour
    * 1 1/4 teaspoons yeast

    For bread machine:
    Measure ingredients into baking pan in order given. Set for dough cycle. When the dough is ready, proceed with “To Colour” below.

    For hand mixed:
    In a large bowl, Disolve sugar in lukewarm water. Add yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes.

    Stir. Add 1 1/2 cups flour and salt. Mix vigourously for at least 5 minutes. This will reduce the kneading time. Add balance of flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough is smooth and no longer sticky.

    Turn onto a floured board and knead for 10 minutes. Cover dough with a clean tea towel and let rise in a warm place for 1/2 to 1 hour, until it doubles in size. Punch down to remove all air bubbles.

    To Colour:
    Divide dough into 3 or 4 equal parts (one part for each colour desired). Poke a hole in the dough with your finger. Put food colouring into the hole. Use a little (5-6 drops) for light colours, more for bright colours. Pinch the hole closed and knead the dough for 5 to 10 minutes, until the colour is well mixed in.

    Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out very flat. Use a little water to moisten the top of one piece so the next piece will stick to it. This is very important if alot of extra flour was used to keep the dough from sticking during kneading. Roll the dough into a log and place it in a greased and floured bread pan. If you do not have a bread pan, it can be placed on a greased and floured cookie sheet. Let rise for 45 to 60 minutes. More rising time will produce a lighter bread, while less time will result in a denser bread.

    Heat oven to 350’F. Bake bread for about 25 minutes. Remove bread from pan immediately when done. Bread should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. If it does not, it is not cooked yet. Cool 10-20 minutes before cutting.ReplyCancel
